Summary
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Posada's death, A Century of Skeletons collects nearly 1,000 reproductions of original prints, including dozens of engravings never before published. Over the last century, Posada's satirical illustrations with their signature "calaveras," or skeletons, have become synonymous with the imagery of Mexico's Day of the Dead celebrations
